Mother Passed Away Poems

Eclipsed by Silence

In the still room,
quiet reigns,
echoes lost,
grief remains.

Photos stare,
faces framed,
once so warm,
now unnamed.

Curtains drawn,
light withdrawn,
shadows stretch,
day feels long.

Memories cling,
tears unseen,
her voice gone,
our hearts keen.

Love still felt,
her essence near,
in silent moments,
we hold her dear.

A Seat at the Table

Empty chair,
silent place,
missing smile,
absent grace.

Dinner served,
plates align,
her voice gone,
echoes pine.

Hands now fold,
prayers brief,
memories warm,
beneath grief.

Gathered close,
laughter fades,
her stories told,
time cascades.

Holiday lights,
shadows dance,
love persists,
one last glance.

Moments in Sepia

Faded photos, sepia tones,
memories warm, love alone.

Smiling faces, days gone by,
her soft gaze, no goodbye.

Captured moments, time stands still,
mother's touch, heart's deep fill.

Old albums, stories told,
her legacy, precious gold.

A Symphony Unfinished

Silent notes hang in the air,
her melody stopped, beyond repair.
Words unsaid, echoes fade,
in the silence, memories cascade.

Her laughter now a distant song,
in the quiet, we belong.
Unfinished symphony of her life,
sharp and tender, joy and strife.

Moments lost, time stands still,
her voice absent, yet we feel.
Songs she sang, whispers of light,
linger softly in the night.

Though she’s gone, music remains,
in our hearts, through joys and pains.

An overwhelming sense of love

Goodnight, Not Goodbye

Stars above, your light remains,
guiding through night’s gentle rains.

Softly spoken, your name I say,
in dreams, you’re never far away.

Each night ends with tender sigh,
goodnight, not goodbye.

Memories wrapped in moon’s glow,
your love, the brightest I know.

In the quiet, your voice I hear,
whispered words, always near.

Hoping for the day we meet,
in dreams, your presence sweet.

Goodnight, Mom, till morning’s rise,
under the same endless skies.

Holding onto reunion’s hope,
together again, we’ll surely cope.
